Top Ten Tuesday #41 + Teaser Tuesday #2

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish 
This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic? Top 10 Bookish Things I'd Like to Own. Well, this is going to be bloody hard to do without pictures! Okay, I lied - there's pictures!! Courtesy of Pinterest! So let's get started!

Book Side Table. I want this so, so, so, so, so unbelievably bad! I love the side table I have for my library right now, but this! Nothing can rival this! This piece of pure genius! It's just - good heavens, just look at it!

Book Necklaces. They're adorable!!!!! I bet that's real paper, too, so if you were really pressed for a place to write an urgent note down, you could always use one of these! Seriously, though, aren't they just cute?

Book Jewelry Box. As if I don't have enough jewelry boxed already. But I don't have this one! And how can a book-lover/jewelry-lover not have a book jewelry box?

"Reading Is My Super Power" Mug. Because everyone should have one of these - especially we Readers who really do seem to have reading as a super power. I mean, we push through 600+ pages in a day - don't tell me that isn't a super power!

Book Pillows. Seriously, as soon as I have time and have convinced my sewing machine that we should be friends, and not mortal enemies, I'm making these. These are too adorable and wonderful and - I want a bunch of them. And put my favorite book titles on the the front.

"Today I'm Reading. . . ." Mugs. I did actually see some of these once - I believe at a World Market store. And I'm not sure why I didn't buy one, because clearly I NEED ONE OF THESE! Maybe then people will stop interrupting what it is I'm reading and just look at my mug!

"I'm not to be trusted in a bookstore with a credit card" button. And that is precisely why I don't have my own credit card. I'm serious. If I did, I would be so up to my eyeballs in debt, because sure - I have a limit, but guess what - I'd spend that limit, and then I'd set myself and higher limit - and a higher and a higher and a higher - I've got a problem.

Beautiful Bookmarks. Because one simply cannot have too many bookmarks, and these are just gorgeous. I must have them. I must! Must, must, must.

Green Leather Book Bag. I cannot even begin to tell you how much I want this book bag. With the clasp and the straps and the beautiful green color . . . . The only thing it's missing is a shoulder strap. But I think I could live with that, given how lovely it is.

Bookish Tea Cup. I collect tea cups, so of course I need a bookish tea cup. It's so cute!

- Grab the book you're currently reading.
- Flip to a random page.
- Select two phrases from that page!

"Well!" she exclaims, her whiskery eyebrows inch-worming their way across her forehead. "You are in a conundrum," says she. When I squint at her, she explains that it means puzzle - a bit of a pickle. "For you're going to need quite a lot more money than that! Not to mention the proper documents. Have you got your papers?"

  1. I want your header-a hobbit hole all of my own. nice teaser too. kelley—the road goes ever ever on

  2. I need all these things. Especially that book bag, that is absolutely gorgeous. In that color too!

    1. Isn't it just wonderful?! Something about that color green is just absolutely fabulous.

  3. Mine is from "Andy Smithson", a juvenile/ya novel: http://pdworkman.com/update-and-teaser-from-andy-smithson-blast-of-the-dragons-fury-teasertuesday/

  4. So many great items. I love the book necklaces and the mug.

  5. Great list! I have the Super Power mug on mine as well. Must buy it! I adore the side table. I can't think of any piece of furniture better than that!

    1. It'd be the perfect side table for a library.

  6. Very cool bookish items! And not to worry. I'm sure you and the sewing machine will work out your differences...eventually. ;)

    1. It's been eight years and the sewing machine still wants to murder me. Okay, it did cooperate when I made my book bag. But now it hates me again.

  7. The reading mugs are a great idea and probably a fun diy project :)

    1. I'm pretty sure World Market sells them, but I do know that the next time I see one, I'm buying it.
